A Public Hearing was held for Kindercare to receive a Special Use Permit. Victor ____ explained that they were seeking a second Special User Permit since the Planning Board requested another means of egress and ingress onto Nott Street. They believed easements were originally in place, but the property owner had a change of heart. Easements are now in place corresponding with the requests of the Planning Board and they now request renewal of the Special Use Permit. Kindercare has added a detention area for storm water drainage rather than the original plan of tieing in with the Van Antwerp Apartments. Maintaining the driveway onto Balltown will be maintained by Cohen & Associates. Mark Handleman had received a permanent egress ingress easement. They have a private arrangement to maintain the driveway. About 100 children will use the facility.
Councilman Horton believes the project is needed by the Town.
When no members of the public wished to heard, the public hearing was declared closed by the Supervisor.
